Office of the Chancellor

Chancellor Jose V. Sartarelli

Dear Seahawk Community,

The spring semester continues to serve as a showcase for excellence at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. In 2017-18, 10 UNCW students received Gilman Scholarships, four students received NOAA/Hollings Scholarships and one student earned a Fulbright Award. Clinical Research Professor Susan Sinclair received the UNC Board of Governors Award for Excellence in Teaching. We also welcomed Miles Lackey to campus as the new Vice Chancellor for Business Affairs.

In April, the university highlighted its strategic focus on community engagement in many ways. The College of Health and Human Services hosted the largest Health Week in its history. The Office of Military Affairs developed the first university subchapter of the Braxton Bragg Chapter of the Association of the United States Army in North Carolina, and the Office of the Arts announced an exciting lineup for this summer’s Lumina Festival of the Arts.

The university’s first-year student abroad program at Maynooth University in Ireland was in the spotlight thanks to an award-winning Communication Studies production. And our Seahawk family really came through for our students and programs during UNCW’s annual Give More in 24 challenge. Thank you, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, donors and friends.

Finally, congratulations to the men’s golf team for winning the Seahawks’ first Colonial Athletic Association championship since 2013, and the men’s tennis team for capturing back-to-back CAA championships in 2017 and 2018.

Go Seahawks!
